Default Do college rivalries have a say in your Texans-based opinions?

Please be honest with this, as I'm very curious to see some of the answers to these questions. Once I have enough answers, I'll compile up the results and post them:

1. Are you happy with the hiring of Kubiak (Texas A&M alumni) as the new HC of the Texans?
2. Would you like the draft Reggie Bush, Vince Young, or trade down with the first pick in the NFL draft?
3. Did you go to Texas A&M, University of Texas, or another school?
4. Other than sports, do college rivalries help you make decisions in life?
5. Do you particularly dislike people/players from UT or A&M?

Please be honest to these, here are my answers:

1. Yes
2. Reggie Bush
3. Another School
4. No, my university was too small to have any rivalries
5. No, I've liked both longhorn and aggie players in the NFL thus far

Nope. I went to a small, crappy D3 school that had little in the way of athletics and almost no school pride. I like winning, no matter who gets us there. And I don't think a professional NFL coach discriminates against his potential players because of their alma mater. I have been to both UT and A&M multiple times, and while I can appreciate the rivalry and understand that it can last for years, I couldn't care less of Kubiak was from A&M or UT, and as far as building this franchise, I doubt he does either.

Edit: although I never liked OU, and generally disliked the time and people I got to know while there. Part of why I love watching Texas beat them down in the Red River Shootout. Thanks for nothing, Chris Simms.

3. Other
4. Ummm....no
5. No. I like good football players no matter where the play ball.

1. Yes, though I have my reservations about him
2. Trade down if at all possible
3. Another school -- Sam Houston, I plan on going to graduate school at Tech
4. Not at all, you have to be able to separate petty rivalries and real life situations
5. Again, not at all, we're all Texans, regardless of where we attended school

Well this is interesting so far. I sort of thought all the VY support would come from UT and all the RB support would come from A&M just to spite UT. The feeling of the message board is so angry that maybe its just a few people constantly stirring the pot

1. Yes. And then some.
2. Preference is VY, Bush and trade down in that order at this point. Trade down gets bumped up in my analysis if we get players as well as good picks but it would have to be really good and make sense.
3. Texas
4. Sometimes they make me buy football tickets to see a game, but no, not really. Married a Texas guy but not because of that.
5. Nope. I've liked players from both schools if they can play. And I don't have a player bias--for example, I was fine with the TJ over DJ pick. I do sometime think that friends of mine who are Ags are kinda weird sometimes though. But I am OK with weird.

Interesting post... My responses:

1. Are you happy with the hiring of Kubiak (Texas A&M alumni) as the new HC of the Texans?
Answer: Absolutely yes

2. Would you like the draft Reggie Bush, Vince Young, or trade down with the first pick in the NFL draft?
Answer: Heart says VY, but head says trade down. Head should prevail.

3. Did you go to Texas A&M, University of Texas, or another school?
UT graduate

4. Other than sports, do college rivalries help you make decisions in life?
Well...I don't wear or purchase maroon-colored shirts or vehicles... But if my kid told me they really wanted to go to A&M I wouldn't discourage. (If they told me they wanted to go to OU it would require some serious justification!).

5. Do you particularly dislike people/players from UT or A&M?
No, not really... I'm not a big McKinney fan but it's b/c I get sick of listening to him (the guy has never seen an interview he didn't like), not b/c he's an Aggie. I liked Aaron Glenn a lot and he's an Aggie. Honestly though, I WOULD like to see this team get a Longhorn or two on the team. After all we are the "Texans". Not a show-killer, but just a little extra to cheer for. Also, I admit that it would be a little difficult if the team was completely dominated by Aggies (just as I'm sure Aggies wouldn't be as excited about a team with 5-6 Longhorns on it). But in the end I want Houston to go to the Super Bowl, whether they're from A&M, OU, or Mars.

1. Yes, but not because of where he's from.

2. Vince Young, admittedly partly because of where he's from and where he wants to be. It's the tie-breaker between three good options.

3. Another

4. No.

5. No. I love UT, but A&M is OK too.

1. Very much so.
2. My prefernce in order Trade, Bush then Young
3. Other, Texas Tech. As for UT and A&AM, my dad is calss of '67 in Austin, and my mom has adopted them since they got married. I was brain washed as a kid, and I still pull for UT every weekend they play unless they are playing Tech. Now factor those two in for my general opinion of teh Aggies, but my wife's borther is one; and in reality they are usaully good people. (minus the Corp )
4. No
5. No, see answer to #3

1. Are you happy with the hiring of Kubiak (Texas A&M alumni) as the new HC of the Texans?

Yes, why should it matter what school he went to?

2. Would you like the draft Reggie Bush, Vince Young, or trade down with the first pick in the NFL draft?

Vince Young because I think he is going to be great at the NFL level and after being a "Carr optimist" for 3.5 years, my optimism has ran out. The Texans need someone to take charge behind center and after watching VY take over games week after week I am convinced he has that ability.

3. Did you go to Texas A&M, University of Texas, or another school?

Guess what? I didn't go to UT. I went to Delaware however you never saw me in here screaming that the Texans should sign Rich Gannon. While I do root for UT and now live in Austin, I honestly came up with my screen name "Hookem Horns" because of the Bull on the Texans helmet, not UT.

4. Other than sports, do college rivalries help you make decisions in life?

That is silly however I KNOW that some Aggies are like that through my working relationships. I had one of them tell me they are biased towards other A&M grads in business dealings. Some of that A&M stuff is a little like a cult if you ask me. I don't get that vibe from UT alums that I know. That all being said, I don't hate A&M and never have.

5. Do you particularly dislike people/players from UT or A&M?

Loved Aaron Glenn when he was here but now he plays for a team a disdain so that love is now gone. Just tell me what roster any UT or A&M player is on and I will tell you if I like him or not.

5. Nope, I could care less (have friends from both schools)

1. I wish they would've got him the first time.

2. VY, followed by a trade down.

3. Another school... UT or A&M didn't have my program.

4. Hell no... it turns my stomach to think that people think this way... and they do.

5. The only people that I dislike are close-minded cretins that let their allegiance cloud their world-view. Neither school has a monopoly on these people.

1 Yes. Best young coach in the league. 3 superbowl rings in 9 years. Awesome hire.

2. I am equally inclined towards both Bush and Trading down. I dont feel that a project QB is the right move for us at this point.

3. Currently at A&M

4. Hmm..that is debateable. Living in college station..I do have an aversion towards burnt orange colors . A burnt orange car is likely to get egged by some drunk aggies after a game.

5. Hmm.. no. Once a player hits the pros, all that matters to me is his abilities.
